There has been a series of motorcycle safety recalls in the US lately. Triumph Motorcycles is releasing its second recall in recent days. This time, Triumph is recalling certain Street Scrambler and Street Twin motorcycles.
A potentially misrouted wiring harness is the culprit. Triumph says the bike’s wiring harness may come into contact with the lower lug on the main frame headstock damaging the wiring harness. A damaged wiring harness could potentially cause the engine to stall and increase the risk of a crash. In all, a total of 2,224 motorcycles may have this defect.
The affected motorcycles are as follows:
|TRIUMPH||STREET SCRAMBLER||2019 – 2020|
|TRIUMPH||STREET TWIN||2019 – 2020|
Triumph will notify owners of affected motorcycles, and dealers will apply a protector to prevent wiring harness damage. If the wiring harness has damage, Triumph dealers will repair or replace it. All recall services are free of charge.
This recall will begin on or around August 27, 2020. Owners may contact Triumph customer service at 1-800-232-3780 and cite Triumph’s recall number SRAN 584. You can also obtain additional information by calling the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 and quote NHTSA Campaign Number 20V472000.
